It gets the job done, the taste it pretty bad though so wouldn't recommend crushing them up to drink it if you can shallow pills, there is an extra strength pills that have an easy to sallow coating that works same

I've been using this kind of Tylenol for many years now and it has been effective. Depending on the headache sometimes I have to take two which helps. It's affordable for what it is and they last awhile if you don't have headaches all the time. I would definitely keep buying this product.

Great for in the purse or gym bag. On the go needing a little meds to get you through. I refill this container after because it’s so handy. The pills work like they should and taste great for some strange reason.

I remember when I had my braces these were the only things that got my through ortho visits. They aren't strong enough to make all the pain go away but they're gentle on the stomach as far as pain relievers go.

I’ve never had a bad experience with Tylenol. Whenever I get bad cramps or a bad headache Tylenol always helps me ease the pain. I will definitely buy Tylenol again and would recommend this product to others.

Even though it is extra strength it doesn't take the pain away. It may take the edge off but not the dull pain. I wish it would work as I can only have pain killers with acetaminophen due to health problems
